Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology

We know, as the population and demand for supplies increase, so does the need for innovative solutions to help protect the environment through the sustainable management of energy. Engineers are paving the path for powering the future through renewable resources and the aim of our workshop is to show our future leaders this career pathOur renewable energy kits allow students to experience hands on activities and to learn more about ‘energy efficiency’. The workshop is an introduction to engineering and how various disciplines such as electrical and chemical engineers are needed to explore and develop alternative and efficient energy sources in real world applications.

Our activities support the STELR Renewable Energy curriculum and allow students to:

  • Discuss climate change causes and effects.
  • Find out about types of energy and how energy can be transferred from place to place and transformed from one typeto another.
  • Investigate energy resources both renewable and non-renewable.
  • Find out about energy conservation and efficiency
  • Study solar electricity and wind turbines using inquiry-basedhands-on activities.
  • Find out about careers in the renewable energy industry.
